Ongoing graphic novel project by ChatGPT and Stable Diffusion, vaguely based on the novel “The Flamethrowers” by Rachel Kushner. Check back regularly for new updates.

Initial prompt:

chose a novel that deals with the life of an artist in the 21 century and transfer it into another place and time: düsseldorf, germany, 2023. the artist has another name and is studying at the kunstakademie düsseldorf. give me a summary of this version


„The Incendiaries“ follows the life of a young artist named Amara who is studying at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. Amara is passionate about using her art to bring attention to the urgent need for action on climate change. She is working on a series of installations that highlight the environmental devastation caused by human activity and the urgent need for change. As she becomes more involved in the art scene in Düsseldorf, Amara meets a wealthy German industrialist named Hans, who is interested in her work and begins to fund her projects. The two become romantically involved, but Amara is also drawn to a group of radical artists who are using their work to protest against the government’s inaction on climate change.

The group of artists, known as the „Incendiaries,“ stage elaborate public art performances to draw attention to the urgent need for action on climate change. They are considered controversial by some and heroic by others, and their actions put them at odds with the authorities. As Amara becomes more deeply involved in the movement, she risks losing everything she has worked for, including her relationship with Hans. She must decide whether to continue to pursue her art and her activism or to take a step back and focus on her personal life.

„The Incendiaries“ offers a vivid portrait of the art world in contemporary Germany and the social and political issues of the era. It is a thought-provoking and inspiring story that will resonate with anyone concerned about the urgent need for action on climate change and the power of art to effect change.

let's make a graphic novel out of it. start with page 1 and with image 1. describe the image content ("description: Close-up shot of Amara's face etc.") and if necessary what is said ("Amara: I think…") or thought in speech bubbles. continue with image 2 and so on. on each page about 4-6 images should be placed in manga style.

Sure, here’s the revised page 1 with an additional panel to show Amara at home before she goes to the Kunstakademie:

Panel 1: Description: Close-up shot of the phone screen, showing an email from the Kunstakademie with the subject „Acceptance Letter.“ Panel-Text: („Congratulations! You have been accepted to the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.“)

Panel 2: Description: Close-up shot of Amara’s face, her eyes closed, holding her phone in her hand. Panel-Text: Amaras Wohnung, 2023.
